The Experimental Particle Physics group at Lancaster University is looking for a research associate or senior research associate to join the NA62 experiment from 1st April 2023. The preferred candidate will be appointed to the appropriate position based on their skills and experience and would work with Professor Roger Jones and Dr Karim Massri.
The NA62 experiment at CERN is a multi-purpose experiment investigating rare kaon decays. Due to a uniquely intense kaon beam provided by the CERN accelerator complex and a range of state-of-the-art detectors, a variety of stringent SM tests can be performed within the NA62 experiment. In particular, the Lancaster group is leading the analysis of leptonic kaon decays to obtain the most-precise Lepton Flavour Universality test in the world.
You will make significant contributions to the analysis of leptonic kaon decays and will contribute to on-site activities at CERN.
You would join on an indefinite contract; however, the role remains contingent on external funding, which at this time runs until 30/09/2025.
Lancaster University is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the UK university league tables. It is located on a beautiful campus in the North-West of England close to the Lake District National Park.
